It can take up to 33 weeks average to be seen for a minor procedure like this one. Our milia removal Birmingham surgeon can help free you of milia as soon as possible.
Milia are very small, raised, pearly-white or yellowish bumps on the skin. They are most often seen on the skin around the cheeks, nose, eyes and eyelids, forehead and chest. However, they can occur anywhere on the body.
Unlike a pimple or spot, milia feel quite hard, almost like a small piece of grit under the skin, and do not have any redness or inflammation as you might expect with whiteheads or acne related papules, pustules and commodones. Milia are not contagious or harmful in any way, but some people may feel self-conscious about them, especially if they are on an area of the skin which is very visible, such as the face. Milia can sometimes take a long time to disappear naturally, but can be professionally removed and extracted through a simple, minor procedure.

How does milia removal work?
We offer a quick and effective treatment option for milia that involves directing a current into their keratinised centre using a tiny hyfrecator tip. While this sounds a little intimidating, it's an extremely safe procedure. The current causes the keratinised tissue to break down and re-enter the body, and the milia simply fall off after one or two days.
A hyfrecator is a machine that’s typically used to cauterise a wound and stop bleeding following an operation. However, a hyfrecator can also be very effective for treatment of milia, cherry angiomas, skin tags, few types of lesions, sebaceous hyperplasia, and other similar conditions.
Another reason why we utilise hyfrecator treatments is how effective they are. The procedure itself is simple, and aftercare is also simple as we promote using a barrier cream during the healing period, and advise to not pick at the area to achieve optimal results. Patients typically see full results within two weeks, at which point the treated lesions will crust and fall away.
